Amazon.com Inc. is among 11 companies that will be questioned by European Union lawmakers next week about low-tax deals as the Internet retailing giant awaits a decision from antitrust regulators on its fiscal pact with Luxembourg.

Barclays Plc and McDonald’s Corp. are also among firms that will appear at a meeting of the European Parliament’s special tax committee on Nov. 16, the panel’s secretariat said Tuesday in an e-mail. An earlier hearing was scuttled when nearly all the corporate invitees turned lawmakers down.
